    "Bobby Hull was a brilliant hockey player, also known as the Golden Jet. This book follows the rise and fall of this hockey legend in both the game of hockey and his publicized personal life. I think all hockey lovers will enjoy this book about the early days of hockey and how the National Hockey League and players have changed and evolved to what we now see in hockey today."

    "I'm not sure why I want any of this in a book. I can get it online from places like Wikipedia, and there it'll be updated regularly. I guess if I wanted to show off to guests it would be nice. It is a beautiful looking book; plenty of pictures, nice cover, sturdy, looks great on the coffee table or bookshelf. But still ... why kill a tree?"

    "One good book about hockey that I know of is: Showtime:One team, one season, one step from NHL. It actually deals with a junior league in Canada, but it gives the reader a great portrait of how hockey players rise up through the ranks to play with the big boys. Very entertaining for NHL fans. "
